Benefits Of Indoor Plants For College Students

A NASA study report says that indoor plants can actually purify the toxin from the air. How does that happen?

The plants help to remove toxins from the air – both physically and chemically. Did you ever notice that your plants get dustier than any other object in your room?? The reason is your plant acts as a dust cling.

Plants are statically charged and they literally pull the dust from the air. Your indoor plant is actually working for you. Take care of them by wiping off the dust. This also enables them to cling more dust.

Plants remove the toxin from the air chemically. How?

Lets us see. We have many objects in our room, made up of plastic, rubber or electronic devices like your laptop etc; they release VOCs into the air. Plants actively attract those chemicals to themselves and turn them into CO2 and nitrogen gas.

Not only will the plants keep you cheerful but they’ll also improve your physical and mental health.
